%N Number of 2's in all partitions of n.

%C Also number of partitions of n-1 with a distinguished part different from all the others. [Comment corrected by _Emeric Deutsch_, Aug 13 2008]

%C In general the number of times that j appears in the partitions of n equals Sum_{k<n, k = n (mod j)} P(k). In particular this gives a formula for a(n), A024787, ..., A024794, for j = 2,...,10; it generalizes the formula given for A000070 for j=1. - Jose Luis Arregui (arregui(AT)posta.unizar.es), Apr 05 2002

%C Equals row sums of triangle A173238. [_Gary W. Adamson_, Feb 13 2010]

%C The sums of two successive terms give A000070. - _Omar E. Pol_, Jul 12 2012

%C a(n) is also the difference between the sum of second largest and the sum of third largest elements in all partitions of n. More generally, the number of occurrences of k in all partitions of n equals the difference between the sum of k-th largest and the sum of (k+1)st largest elements in all partitions of n. And more generally, the sum of the number of occurrences of k, k+1, k+2..k+m in all partitions of n equals the difference between the sum of k-th largest and the sum of (k+m+1)st largest elements in all partitions of n. - _Omar E. Pol_, Oct 25 2012

%C Number of singletons in all partitions of n-1. A singleton in a partition is a part that occurs exactly once. Example: a(5) = 4 because in the partitions of 4, namely [1,1,1,1], [1,1,2'], [2,2], [1',3'], [4'] we have 4 singletons (marked by '). - _Emeric Deutsch_, Sep 12 2016.

%e For n = 7 we have:

%e . Number

%e Partitions of 7 of 2's

%e --------------------------------------

%e 7 .............................. 0

%e 4 + 3 .......................... 0

%e 3 + 2 + 2 ...................... 2

%e 3 + 3 + 1 ...................... 0

%e 4 + 2 + 1 ...................... 1

%e 2 + 2 + 2 + 1 .................. 3

%e 3 + 2 + 1 + 1 .................. 1

%e 4 + 1 + 1 + 1 .................. 0

%e 2 + 2 + 1 + 1 + 1 .............. 2

%e 3 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 .............. 0

%e 2 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 .......... 1

%e 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 ...... 0

%e ------------------------------------

%e . 24 - 13 = 11

%e .

%e The difference between the sum of the second column and the sum of the third column of the set of partitions of 7 is 24 - 13 = 11 and equals the number of 2's in all partitions of 7, so a(7) = 11.
